Paradise Valley, AZ
One of the original Casas from the now Sanctuary Resort has served as a family home for multiple generations. The client wanted to update the 1950’s home to be more efficient and less maintenance than the wood clad and shake shingle house would permit. The family enjoys hosting several guests during the pleasant months and the house layout aimed to support this with sleeping rooms with separate entries. The main living space was keep virtually the same layout with respect to previous generations who instilled memories in the home, yet enhancing the ceilings with vaulted exposed timber structure and additional windows and doors to enhance views and access to the exterior. The master suite was reconfigured to create home office spaces that could be utilized as additional sleeping spaces when needed. The look of the home kept the ranch style profile with more of a Hacienda material palette. We introduced a viewing platform on the roof of the master to take advantage of the 360 degree vistas. The landscape was completely transformed to create new terraced seating areas, and a new outdoor living room in the front took advantage of natural shading on the north side of the structure.
